Soil acidity, content of carbonates, and available phosphorus are the soil factors best correlated with alpine vegetation, evidence from Troms. north Norway / Geir Arnesen, Pieter S.A. Beck, Torstein Engelsjøn.

Title: Soil acidity, content of carbonates, and available phosphorus are the soil factors best correlated with alpine vegetation, evidence from Troms. north Norway / Geir Arnesen, Pieter S.A. Beck, Torstein Engelsjøn.

Date: 2007.
In: Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research. (2007.), Vol. 39(2) (2007)
Abstract: Investigates which bedrock-derived soil nutrients are most important for floristic composition and diversity of alpine, exposed, rocky habitats in northern Norway, and whether widely used pH parameter is good estimate of soil conditions. Finds that, next to soil pH (which is correlated with carbonate mineral content, availability of phosphorus is soil factor most correlated with primary floristic gradients; also that amount of calcium available in soil weathered from carbonate rocks exceeds physiological requirement of plant species present.
